Wales FlagCome and visit North Wales and drink our beer while you're here. It's great, and so is North Wales! You will find that our brewery name, along with the names of our standard beers appear in both Welsh and English. The Welsh language is widely spoken in this corner of Wales and for many people it is their first language. If you are a visitor to the area you will see bilingual signs and hear people speaking their native language. Please respect this, it's quite normal and people are very friendly. Diolch yn fawr. You could even have a go at speaking Welsh yourself! Diolch yn fawr!
